The Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) registered a complaint with the Media Complaints Committee (MCC) over a story published by the NewsDay on 6th February 2018 headlined, “ZRP Masvingo Projects Collapse”.
The ZRP raises the following issues in their letter of complaint:
- That the NewsDay story in question is recycled from an article published by the Masvingo Mirror in April 2015 headlined, “Junior Cops up in arms against forced contributions”.
- That the story is designed to continue denigrating the integrity and image of the ZRP and represents unethical and unprofessional conduct.
The NewsDay Editor, Wisdom Mdzungairi, is yet to respond to the complaint.
